Walter Gropius’s 1919 Bauhaus Manifesto championed the synergy of art and craftsmanship in design—and the sleek, beautifully made merchandise offered here reflects that marriage.  Many of the shop’s housewares and objets are iconic representations of Bauhaus design—like Marianne Brandt’s 1926 ashtrays and bowls, or Wilhelm Wagenfeld’s classic domed lamp—but there are more contemporary pieces too. Profits from the shop are used to maintain the Bauhaus Archive museum and produce exhibition catalogues.
